Report on Self-Regulation by the Broadcasting and Advertising Industries for the Elimination of Sex-Role Stereotyping in the Broadcast Media.
Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission, Ottawa (Ontario).
The Task Force on Sex-Role Stereotyping was established in 1979 by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). Comprised of members of the broadcasting industry, the task force included the Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB), the advertising industry, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), public members, and the CRTC. The task force published a report in 1982 that set out a wide-ranging program, based on industry self-regulation with public accountability, to improve the portrayal of women in the programming and commercial content broadcast on Canadian radio and television. The task force recommended that the CRTC monitor and assess the initiatives taken by the broadcasting and advertising industries during a 2-year period. The report contains no conclusions as to the effectiveness of self-regulation, but is rather a progress report on the self-regulatory process from the perspective of all participants. It also contains a summary of a comprehensive content analysis study commissioned by the CRTC and conducted by Erin Research. The document contains numerous charts and graphs. Ten appendices present tables, member lists, statistics, and a nine-item CBC bibliography. (JB)
